Added DiffLines:

* RomanticRunnerUp: Andrew really is just as nice as he appears, and if things had been different, he and Mia probably could have made a go of a content, if not exactly passionate, marriage. He is seen standing with Lilly and Nicholas at Mia's coronation, making it clear that they did remain friends.

Added DiffLines:

** Phillipe Renaldo in the books was a LadykillerInLove who ReallyGetsAround because Mia's mother refused to marry him, out of fear of being forced into the royal life. He also makes a series of bad judgments. In the movies, Phillipe was none of these things in life (though in fairness Helen actually did marry him, and they got divorced) and Mia mentions that he covered her school tuition and would send her nice presents.


Added DiffLines:

** Josh Richter in the books was a DumbBlonde who didn't even realize that Mia existed until she was outed as a princess. He gets a PetTheDog moment in the film which then doubles as a BaitTheDog moment: when Mia is struggling as goalie in soccer, he gives her the advice to try and stay calm and not be scared of the ball.


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy:
** Paolo, who was merely Mia's hair stylist and her occasional confidante in the books, outs her as a princess for some money and the glory of having done her stunning makeover.
** Lana Weinberger doesn't get the redeeming moments that she earns later in the series, with [[spoiler:befriending Mia after Michael breaks up with the latter and Mia suffers a TraumaCongaLine as a result and Mia realizing that Lana is just a shallower version of Lilly , in that she makes insulting remarks because she thinks she's funny]].


Added DiffLines:

* BaitTheDog: Josh has one PetTheDog moment towards Mia, where he tries to give her advice on not being scared of soccer balls while she's playing goalie in recess. Then after he finds out she's a princess he tries to use her to get his "fifteen minutes of fame".


Added DiffLines:

* SlutShaming: Grandmere calls out Mia for getting the embarrassing photos published and being at a WildTeenParty at the beach, since she can't go after Josh. Joe later in turn tells Grandmere that she was being too hard on Mia since Josh was the one who led to the embarrassing photos, and Mia was a victim.

* StealthInsult: Delivered during a toast to the film's villains, Baron and Baroness [[PunnyName von Baron]]; ([[spoiler:who hope that Mia fails to accept her royal heritage in order to allow for them to be next in line to rule Genovia]]) in which the toast went "To Baron and Baroness von Baron, may you always remain [[spoiler:barren]]". (This could also be interpreted as [[spoiler:"baron", as in may he stay baron and thus never get to rule Genovia]].)

Very little resembles the plot of the books. For the first film, much of the core plot from the first book does remain, however major changes were made to some plot points and characters or some of them were removed entirely. The second film, ''The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement'' is in fact an entirely new creation: the only plot point from the books being used was Mia's mother marrying her teacher and having a baby with him. However, these movies gave the world Anne Hathaway, for which the world will be forever grateful (and ChrisPine, for which women everywhere will be forever grateful), and are popular sleepover fare with preteen (and not so preteen) girls to this day. A 2-movie collection, containing both films, is released on Blu-ray Disc on May 15, 2012.
